First off, the hotel is in the most perfect location. A driveway and a few steps away there are tons of restaurants, a perfect grocery store with everything you can dream of (it's French, so amazing), and a huge beach with multiple beach bars. I have to be honest, we hung out at the orient bay beach for the first... More

My husband and I stayed hear the week of Christmas. The location is wonderful. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach, grocery store, and restaurants. The property of the hotel is quite good. Nice foliage and pool. The cleaning staff does a wonderful job with the rooms and the floors were always spotless. That said, I found the... More

We have stayed at a number of places on the French side of St Martin and love the Orient Beach area. This time Ted Demeritte of the St Martin Reservation Center recommended the Palm Court. We were thrilled with his suggestion. It is conveniently located about a half a block from the village restaurant area and a block from the... More

We spent a very pleasant week at the Palm Court. Pleasant personnel, good location, nice breakfast at poolside. No real complaints, we would love to return there. There are no real cooking facilities (the cooktop is disconnected so the description is a little misleading but the frig and microwave are a nice touch).

We stayed at Palm Court from Dec. 7-12. The hotel is an excellent condition with beautifully kept and gated grounds. The hotel manager Anne Jacques offered us a very warm welcome and greeted us by name when we arrived. Her staff are well trained and very accommodating. This is probably the finest choice of hotels on Orient Bay. You will... More

After staying for a week at Flamingo Beach resort on the Dutch side, we added a bit of "dessert" by moving for a few days to Orient Beach on the French side. The contrast is quite marked, each having a different set of attributes. We had last visited St. Martin over 20 years ago and stayed at Grand Case Beach... More

Awesome location and friendly staff. Except the breakfast lady who acted like it was a giant pain in the butt to serve breakfast at 10:00 even though they are supposed to close at 10:30. Anna at the front desk is a delight and extremely helpful. We arrived at the hotel as Hurricane Gonzalo began taking it's toll and Anna went... More

We've stayed at the Palm Court twice, and we will be back. The location is excellent, and the staff has taken very good care of us. We were there during Hurricane Gonzalo, and Anne and her people did their best to keep us safe, fed, and comfortable while quickly cleaning up the considerable damage. The complimentary breakfast is perfect, the... More

I gave this hotel a Terrible review in 2009 and it deserved it based on my experience. Now that Trip Advisor has ranked it #1 in Orient Bay, I decided to return, and I've replaced the Terrible review of 2009 with this Excellent one. What an incredible difference they've made! As bad as it was in 2009, I've never seen... More

We visited Palm Court at the end of August and it was quiet and relaxing. Anne, the manager, was great. Wonderful personality, charming, and helped us out whenever we asked. We needed a electric converter and she loaned us one. We wanted to check out after the 11:00 checkout time and it was no problem. We will be back next... More
